Legalisation

Documents from certain countries must be legalised or have an apostille. More information can be found at the website for legalisation and apostille.

Translations

Some foreign documents must be translated into Dutch by a certified translator. The municipality will verify the authenticity of the identity documents.

If foreign documents have been issued by the relevant authority in French, German or English, these will often be accepted. In case of doubt, translations will be provided by the Expat Centre.
